How Canada works:

 

- Family owns chocolate factory in Syria

- Factory gets bombed

- They lose everything

- Canadians sponsor them

- They move to town of 4,000 people

- Dad starts making chocolate in basement

- Word spreads

 

They now make 250,000 pieces of chocolate a month ?? https://t.co/hVVQJ5jWjr

For comparison's sake, the current Toronto City Council has 47 members for a city of less than 3 million people.  New York City has 51 for a city of more than 8.5 million people.

Hmm. I wonder if Torontonians have a more positive experience regarding constituent services and responsiveness by their councillors than New Yorkers do about theirs?

The cities listed there all have building restrictions that make housing expansion difficult, while Toronto just builds and builds.  Seattle less so but there's been pushback there too. It doesn't make sense to base a national economy around cities that can't grow.

It seems that when Americans express concern about this sort of thing, they're labeled as "racist"

 

‘Birth Tourism’ Is Legal in Canada. A Lawmaker Calls It Unscrupulous.

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/world/canada/china-birth-tourism.html

 

“Birth tourism may be legal, but it is unethical and unscrupulous,” said Joe Peschisolido, a Liberal member of Parliament in Richmond, who brought a petition against the practice to Ottawa, where the immigration minister, Ahmed Hussen, said he would examine the issue.

 

The practice underlines how Canada, and British Columbia in particular, has become a favored haven for well-heeled Chinese seeking a refuge for wealth and kin away from authoritarian China."

I don't hear Canada suggesting the Chinese are all gangsters and lepers and rapists.  Incidentally, can you imagine 2019 America putting a guy named Ahmed Hussen in charge of immigration policy?

From the way all the Trump haters are always singing the praises of Justin Trudeau, I thought he was supposed to be "Mr. Clean" 🤪

 

Justin Trudeau's reelection bid hits the rocks

The Canadian leader faces unprecedented political peril as a fast-escalating scandal implicates him specifically.

 

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/28/justin-trudeau-election-1229686

 

All bets are now off about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's political survival.

 

An ethics scandal has plunged Canada's government into disarray, with the prime minister himself facing unprecedented political peril.

 

A flood of new details allege Trudeau and several senior government officials repeatedly pressured his former attorney general to drop corruption charges against a large construction company and reach a settlement agreement. Trudeau's political opponents sent police a letter Thursday requesting an investigation and called for Trudeau's resignation.

Trying to remember the last time anyone posted anything about Trudeau on here.  I think it was when some of our resident Trumpsters posted some fraudulent crap about him being Castro's secret love child.

^ He seems to be newsworthy every few months:

 

Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 ‘Arabian Nights’ Party While He Taught at a Private School

https://time.com/5680759/justin-trudeau-brownface-photo/

 

👳🏿‍♂️

 

Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, wore brownface makeup to a party at the private school where he was teaching in the spring of 2001. TIME has obtained a photograph of the incident.

 

The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (or is he?!), wearing a turban  and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.

Terrible and he'll definitely face serious criticism for it.  Liberals don't tolerate that and handle their own.  Haven't you defended it before?   Isn't the conservative response to this kind of thing is that "it was years ago and people make mistakes"? 

 

And if this is the worst scandal Canada has right  now, I'd gladly trade places.  We have a president willing to disclose classified intel to the enemy, hand over citizens to authoritarian regimes and invite terrorists to Camp David for tea.  All things you never bother talking about.

In addition to the other instance Trudeau admitted to voluntarily (to get ahead of it), that makes the count 3 separate times he's donned brown/blackface.

 

What is it about folks who love to play the role of arbiter of what is or isn't racist and the urge to dress up in blackface? Is it just an odd coincidence?

Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party wins Canada's general election

By Darran Simon, CNN

Updated 7:13 AM ET, October 22, 2019

 

(CNN) Election results show Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party will return to power, but as a minority government after Monday's general election, according to CBC News and CTV News.  The victory ensures that Trudeau will serve as Prime Minister for a second term.

( . . . )

Trudeau, the Liberal leader, and Conservative leader Andrew Scheer were the two top contenders in Monday's competitive general election.  More than 300 parliamentary seats were up for grabs.  Health care, the climate crisis and the cost of living reportedly are voters' top issues.
